On May 31, the very next day, during her lunch break, Carol Ross went to the Jacksons at the corner of Pine and Eagle in Meridian where the clerk asked her if she wanted “her usual” – an Idaho Jackpot and a Big Money Jackpot ticket.
“I knew the jackpot had been won recently, but did not realize it had been won yesterday,” said Ross. “Still, when asked if I wanted the usual I said yes. I guess now the usual comes with a $5,373 winning jackpot!”
A teacher, Ross plans to pay off some bills and have a little fun with her winnings once summer vacation begins.
“I can’t retire on it. Not yet, anyway,” said a hopeful Ross.
